Dublin, Georgia, Trinity Christian School Educators Receives National Recognition

Dublin, GA – January 28, 2014 Three local teachers have earned national recognition for outstanding performance in advancing reading practice and proficiency.

Natalie Maffett, Lee Drake and Sherry Foskey were awarded Accelerated Reader  Model Classroom Certification by Renaissance Learning, a Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., based company.

Model Classroom Certification acknowledges that Maffett’s, Drake’s, and Foskey’s efforts to promote personalized reading practice, assess comprehension, and monitor progress have resulted in measurable improvements in reading proficiency.

Accelerated Reader  Model Classroom Certification demonstrates that a majority of the teacher’s students have met or exceeded goals for reading practice and comprehension.  After reading fiction and non-fiction books at the appropriate level, students take quizzes to assess their comprehension. Accelerated Reader provides immediate feedback to help teachers facilitate reading level growth.

“TrinityChristianSchool is proud to have these three teachers working so diligently with our students.  Their encouragement and guidance to each of their students is a blessing.  These teachers have worked very hard to monitor their students reading progress and to offer assistance when the students need it,” stated Patricia Rogers, Trinity Christian School Media Specialist
